This song has a real groovy jam, a highlight of the Mars Hotel album for me. Always wondered why they didn't try it live until the end. Phil & friends have played it on numerous occasions. Wish I could offer up a good suggestion but don’t have the resources at hand. I remember getting into a version featuring Steve Kimock on lead. Might as well have the lyrics in the thread:

Blue light rain, whoa, unbroken chain
Looking for familiar faces in an empty window pane
Listening for the secret, searching for the sound
But I could only hear the preacher and the baying of his hounds

Willow sky, whoa, I walk and wonder why
They say love your brother but you will catch it when you try
Roll you down the line boy, drop you for a loss
Ride out on a cold railroad and nail you to a cross

November and more as I wait for the score
They're telling me forgiveness is the key to every door
A slow winter day, a night like forever
Sink like a stone, float like a feather

Lilac rain, unbroken chain
Song of the Saw-Whet owl
Out on the mountain it'll drive you insane
Listening to the winds howl

Unbroken chain of sorrow and pearls
Unbroken chain of sky and sea
Unbroken chain of the western wind
Unbroken chain of you and me

Lyrics: Bobby Petersen Music: Phil Lesh

Whiled away some leisure time today checking out many versions of Unbroken Chain by the many versions of Phil & Friends. Here's the one I was originally thinking of -
had forgotten about the other guests - way to go Phil!
